Do you have teeth that are crooked or a bite problem that needs an orthodontic solution?
Fuller Dental is your local oral health resource for the long-term care of your smile. We offer orthodontic options for teens and adults including Sure Smile® clear aligners. Sure Smile® is an Invisalign alternative that can straighten your teeth discreetly and comfortably using the latest technology and treatment technique. Clear aligners have become a trusted and effective orthodontic treatment for mild to moderate concerns, offering patients unique benefits over metal braces.
What is Sure Smile®?
Sure Smile® is a clear aligner system that is used to correct a range of orthodontic concerns. Dr. Fuller and our team at Fuller Dental may recommend Sure Smile® to treat crooked teeth, overcrowding of teeth, and bite problems such as an overbite. Sure Smile® can deliver exceptional and lasting results with less discomfort and inconvenience when compared to traditional methods.
Using a set of custom-made clear aligners, Sure Smile® will gradually realign and reposition the teeth according to your unique treatment plan. The aligners will fir over the teeth much like a mouthguard and are made of a high-tech material that is more effective for longer periods of time. For patients, this means fewer aligner changes and improved overall comfort. Like all other aligner systems, Sure Smile® aligners are removable for eating and daily oral hygiene.
A CAD-CAM technology, Sure Smile® uses an advanced software system that creates a treatment plan tailored to your anatomy. This means that your final result will be designed to support optimal dental health, a functional bite, and a natural appearance for your smile.
Sure Smile®: what to expect
Treatment with Sure Smile® is a straightforward process that starts with digital dental impressions. Using a handheld device, we will scan your mouth and create digital images that are used in evaluating your needs and creating a treatment plan to meet them.
The aligners are changed out on a predetermined schedule that we will go over with you once they are complete and the first set is ready to be placed. Periodic visits are needed to monitor your progress and ensure a predictable outcome. With Sure Smile®, most patients can complete treatment in a year or less. Longer treatment times may be needed for more complex needs and we will provide details on treatment time after your initial consultation and impressions.
Once treatment is completed we will recommend the ongoing use of a retainer. Wearing a retainer will keep your teeth in their new position and keep your smile looking its best for the long run.
